For kids who are prone to bottling up their feelings, this mobile journal might just be the key to helping them learn to express themselves. Jour - Guided Journaling isn't particularly fancy. There aren't dancing GIFs or social commentaries. It's just private journaling, which is pretty much what journaling should be. The guided journal prompts are simple but accessible for teens and adults. They're a great way to begin for those who have never kept a journal before, and they're also helpful for those days when you think you have nothing to say. Jour - Guided Journaling isn't perfect: It occasionally crashes, and the information screens seem to take forever to move forward (a tap will manually move you ahead), but it meets a specific purpose without trying to be all things to all people. If you're looking for a great starter journal app, this just might be it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
